Which would be an illegal requirement to misrepresent the copyright and
presumably void.  (I'm not sure whether one is allowed to replace
the assigner of copyright by the assignee, but I'm sure you cannot 
modify the date of first publication and you cannot delete the copyright
claims of other contributors.)
